Still got it! Steve Spurrier hilariously trolls Texas' move to SEC
If Steve Spurrier can sneak in a jab here or there, he’s going to do it. Not only is the former Florida and South Carolina head coach known for his excellence on the field, he’s one of the wittier personalities in college football.
As an SEC legend, Spurrier was asked for his opinion on Oklahoma and Texas moving to the SEC, a groundbreaking development that is sure to shake the current construct of college athletics. The “Head Ball Coach” had quite a response.
“I can understand Texas jumping (to the SEC). They get to play Texas A&M again,” Spurrier told Edgar Thompson of the Orlando Sentinel. “They can’t win in the Big 12 anyway. I think they’ve only won two in the last 30 years or so. What is it?”
Spurrier was pretty close, as Texas has won three Big 12 titles since 1996. The Longhorns have also won a national title in that period, beating USC in the 2005 Rose Bowl.
You might’ve guessed, but those comments from Spurrier have made the rounds on social media. It’s another feather in the cap for one of the best interviews associated with the sport.
Texas and Oklahoma are expected to be approved to join the SEC by the league’s presidents.
